    Sweet. I might just order it, need a case on this thing, feels too light. I saw on Phandroid that the Seidio Rep posted something about cases for the S 4G. Item code is the same as for the regular S, so i'm thinking/hoping, this should be the same for most case manufacturers.

    If you look at Sprint's page for the Nexus S 4G and Google's page for the Nexus S, the dimensions are identical except the Nexus S 4G weighs 2 grams more than the Nexus S.

    I recall reading in an Engadget hands-on post at CTIA that the Nexus S 4G was .3 mm thicker than the original, which is the thickness of a business card. That same post however noted that the Nexus S 4G hardware was not final.

    Based on what I'm seeing, I think it's fair to assume that most, if not all, Nexus S cases will fit the Nexus S 4G. I look forward to everyone's impression of the Incipio Feather Case in the near future as that will likely be my choice.

    If I do anything it will be a ZAGG for the screen surface. I think it really needs it for glare alone, let alone protection. I can hardly read it in sunlight.

    Zagg is WAY overrated! Ghost armor is the way to go. Much smoother, no yellowing effect, and lasts longer IMO.

    I think I am set,

    I just orderd a active black innocase,
    a full body zagg kit for the back,
    and a seideo ultimate screen guard.

    I just wished the innocase had port covers.

    This thing should be covered, literally.

    Chances are it's the very same 3m film. At least in the car coating biz, the difference between brands is the pattern and the level of warranty.

    There are very few manufacturers of the actual film and I'd rather have 3m than some knockoff.

    I bought the Incipio Feather case ages ago hoping it'd work but then was super disappointed when it was posted that it wouldn't. Well, on a whim, I tried to use it after I got the phone home Sunday - the phone is so insubstantial I feel like it could break any minute or worse, get a big scratch. Anyway, near as I can tell, it fits fine. The only real possible issues is the power button is very close to the edge of the cutout, but that doesn't create a problem. Also it's very snug, but I've since taken it off and put it on a couple times and it gets easier each time,

    So your basically confirming the original Incipio Feather Case for Nexus S is fitting no problems on the Sprint Nexus S?

    I searched and researched and watched videos etc... I was looking for a slim hard case and a screen protector that was like Zagg's Invisible Shield but without the orange peeling... anyways here's what I decided to go with.
    1. Based on price and its not gel like, the screen protectors I will simply throw away a long with the Stylus.

    Amazon.com: SAMSUNG GOOGLE NEXUS S "S" CURVE GEL CASE - BLACK, WITH 6 SCREEN PROTECTORS & 1 STYLUS: Electronics

    2. I had Skinomy on my Nexus one and realized that it make the screen less readable and fuzzy, I also had the Zagg on my old iPhone and noticed some orange-ish on the film...not good. SO based on reviews and price i gave this a shot... both are in the mail on the way!

    Phantom Skinz |Samsung Nexus S, cell phone skins, screen protectors, cases, covers, shields, full body protection

    Went with screen only $9 since I have a case for the back.

    What did you guys go with? Or what do you think?

    This isn't a car. And there is a huge difference. I've used both for years. And Ghost Armor is defiantly not a knock off. It's a better quality for the reason's I've listed before.

    Why on earth would the fact that it's not a car or that -you've- used it invalidate my statements? Both ZAGG and Ghost Armor claim they use the same film as military helicopter blades (which is what they put on cars). It all eventually gets old. It all eventually needs to be replaced.

    Do they state what kind of film they use? That would settle this.

    The film might be the same but the adhievesive is probably different and make the film react in a different way. But I'm telling you from personal experience that Zagg's have a yellowing and an "Orange Peel" look to them. The texture is different between the two. Ghost armor has a much smoother finish to it.

    Fair enough, that was my guess as well (the adhesive).

    I always thought the yellowing in this kind of application was due to dirt from skin oils over time rather than the traditional cause of yellowing and cracking for this kind of stuff - extended exposure to sunlight.

    Maybe I'll give GA a go this time.
